MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee police are searching for a gunman after a car was shot up near 38th and Cherry late Thursday, Oct. 2. Three people were wounded in the incident.

"Five shots going out. Police were going through the yards finding casings," said John Patton.

According to police, there were four individuals seated in a vehicle when an unknown suspect(s) approached the vehicle and fired shots -- causing non-life threatening injuries to three of the four persons inside. All three victims were adults -- one was 19, the other two were 20 years old.

Patton told FOX6 News he was dropping off his son when he said he heard at least five gunshots. He saw police arrest someone.

"They were chasing the guy," Patton said.

"It's crazy because we stand on this bus stop every morning. It's too close to home," said Marquica Woods, who lives nearby.
